Friday 7 June

Czech Republic 11/20 
Draw 28/10 
Bulgaria 11/2 

Group A sees a tie between Czech Republic and Bulgaria with both countries still in search of their first win for the qualifying stages. The Czechs were hammered in their opening game by England, losing 5-0, while Bulgaria drew both of their encounters played so far, against Montenegro and Kosovo, two opponents they were expected to cruise past. Patrik Schick will be raring to go for his country after being starved of football towards the back end of last season for Roma. Get on the home side here at 11/20.

Denmark 11/20 
Draw 26/10 
Ireland 11/2 

Denmark and Ireland lock horns this Friday with both teams looking to keep their unbeaten run intact. The hosts fought on hard to come from 3-0 down against Switzerland in their first encounter, scoring three goals in the final six minutes of the game to draw 3-3. Ireland edged both of their ties 1-0 against Gibraltar and Georgia which sees them top the standings in Group D. Denmark have all the capabilities of breaking through the Irish’s rock-solid defence and with midfield generals, Christian Eriksen and Lasse Schone, supplying Ajax forward, Kasper Dolberg, who is growing in confidence at national level, back the home win.

Faroe Islands 55/1 
Draw 11/1 
Spain 1/33 

Faroe Islands face the daunting task of hosting Spain this coming Friday with the Islanders just out to avoid humiliation. The hosts are rooted to the foot of Group F after losing their opening two games, conceding six goals in that run. Spain have been ruthless since the appointment of Luis Enrique, winning both of their Group F encounters thus far, while they also beat Croatia 6-0 in the early stages of Enrique’s appointment. Take Over 4.5 Goals here at a valuable 16/10.

North Macedonia 34/10 
Draw 23/10 
Poland 17/20 

Group G pits an enticing clash between North Macedonia and Poland this Friday with just two points separating the two sides after two games. The hosts have managed four points in two matches, beating Latvia and then drawing against Slovenia, while Poland have beaten both Austria and Latvia. The Macedonians have been superb on home soil in recent outings, winning the last six. Both Teams to Score is tipped here at 21/20.

Austria 7/10 
Draw 49/20 
Slovenia 17/4 

Friday’s proceedings end with a clash between Austria and Slovenia with both sides getting their qualifying campaign off to a dire start. The Austrians have suffered two defeats in both of their opening encounters, while the Slovenians are also yet to get off the mark, drawing both of their ties played so far. The key battle in this matchup is likely to be between Austrian marksman Marko Arnautovic and Slovenian shot-stopper, Jan Oblak, who is expected to keep things tidy in the visitors’ defence. Put your money on the draw here at 49/20.

Saturday 8 June

Croatia 11/20 
Draw 28/10 
Wales 5/1 

Saturday’s action kick-starts with a mouth-watering tie between Croatia and Wales. The Croats seemed to have suffered a bit of a dip after finishing second in the 2018 World Cup, winning just three of the eight games that followed. They now come up against a Welsh side looking to make it back-to-back wins in the group after edging top-placed Slovakia out to a 1-0 scoreline. With Aaron Ramsey currently sidelined for the visitors, Ryan Giggs has opted to bring in fresh young talent in the form of David Brooks and Daniel James, who has been linked with a move to his coach’s former team, Manchester United. Real Madrid superstars, Luka Modric and Gareth Bale, are also likely to feature. Back Both Teams to Score here at a fairly valuable 5/4.

Belarus 13/1 
Draw 11/2 
Germany 2/11 

The fixtures seem to be getting tougher and tougher for Belarus as they host Germany up next in Group C. The hosts suffered defeats to Northern Ireland and the Netherlands, with both countries currently sitting on top of the Germans, who have played a game less. Coach Joachim Low will miss Die Mannschaft’s upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers after reportedly injuring himself while lifting a dumbbell. Germany fought on hard for an emphatic 3-2 win away at Netherlands in their opening encounter and should ease past Belarus here. Take the Germans on the (-1) Handicap at 11/20.

Turkey 5/1 
Draw 28/10 
France 11/20 

World champions, France, prepare for battle next when they take on Turkey this Saturday. Les Bleus have been ruthless in the group stages, winning their opening two matches, scoring four goals in each game. Turkey have been just as impressive, also winning their opening two ties, keeping a clean sheet in each of their two matches. Olivier Giroud, Antoine Griezmann and Kylian Mbappe have all been finding their feet for the national team thus far, with each player scoring two goals each. Expect another goal fest here and back Over 2.5 Goals at even money.

Greece 5/1 
Draw 2/1 
Italy 19/20 

Italy have caught everyone’s eye in their recent matches with Roberto Mancini’s men keeping a clean sheet in each of their last five games, including in both of their opening qualifying group games in which they beat Finland 2-0 and Liechtenstein 6-0. Greece are just two points behind the Italians in the standings, which is impressive considering the fact that they played both of their ties away from home so far. Kostas Fortounis has been Greece’s go-to man for the goals, while the defensive partnership of Kostas Minolas and Sokratis Papastathopoulos will look to shut the Italians out. It may be short priced, but back Under 2.5 Goals at 4/10.

Scotland 11/20 
Draw 28/10 
Cyprus 11/2 

After disappointing starts to their qualifying campaign, Scotland and Cyprus lock horns this weekend with a step closer to the top of the pile being the main objective. Scotland were hammered 3-0 by Kazakhstan in their opening game before beating San Marino 2-0, while the visitors also beat San Marino, but were humbled by Belgium. The Scots have the playing personnel to ease past the Cypriots, namely with Andrew Robertson, Scott McTominay and Ryan Fraser in their team, but Steve Clarke’s men just haven’t been gelling together as a team. I’m going for an upset here and backing a draw at 28/10.

TREBLE @ 7/1
Denmark Win 11/20
Faroe Islands vs Spain Over 4.5 Goals 16/10
Turkey vs France Over 2.5 Goals 1/1
